Ep.111 Liberte Free to Be

Honestly with Honor!

Honor Marks

Maker of amazing holidays in France and Champion of Midlife Women









This weeks guest is joining me from her home in the South of France (www.maisondelaroche.com)

Living the dream life with some curve balls along the way. 

Honor Marks is an instagram Coach and gîte owner in the South of France. Honor shares her journey on social media with honesty, good humour and a good dose of reality. She is passionate about supporting other women in midlife and helping them refind their mojo. 

Whilst some of us still might dream of moving to France (It's on my future plans list!) Honor moved from London with her then husband and daughter to experience a new way of life. Life has a way of throwing you unexpected curve balls in midlife and as Honor shares so openly the breakdown of her marriage around her 50th birthday was one of those moments. Followed by the pandemic which saw an abrupt stop to her gite rental business she was left at a crossroads. 

Honor had already created a strong social media following on Instagram with confidence so she turned her hand to coaching and helping other women become more confident and visible as an Instagram coach. Life has slowly returned back to normal with a summer full of gite guests so what's next for Honor and her French adventures?

Subject covered-

  • Moving to France and making someone else's dream work
  • Becoming a gite owner
  • Curve balls at 50 and getting divorced

Do you dream of moving abroad? If so what's stopping you? I know for me it's family ties, I want to wait until my youngest has finished her degree next year before I start planning, but that doesn't stop me doing the research of which areas we like best and I lose endless hours scrolling through Rightmove. 

One thing I've learnt from interviewing all these fabulous women is that nothing is impossible!
